My Three Cake Mojo

I hope everyone is having a nice weekend! It's a beautiful morning here, not a cloud in the sky! The weather guy is singing a different tune...he says a storm is coming. :( Let's hope not!

For the Mojo Monday sketch challenge, I decided to use the Candy Lane DSP which screamed the three cakes from the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. I love these colours together, they're just so pretty.

For the inside, I wanted to bring the outside in. I did the same cakes with a strip of DSP at the bottom. Simple!

Trendy Trees

This is the first card I made with my Trendy Tree Stamp Set. Isn't the set cute?? I don't even think it looks bad to have the trees a weird colour, like blue.
I carried the theme through to the inside of the card. It was so simple, I didn't even feel I had to layer anything.

This set is best used with the Stamp-A-Ma-Jig so you can get the branches to fit perfectly in the tree I making sense??

This card is for the Stamps and Smiles Sketch Challenge. Isn't this sketch cute?? It looks so simple but the results look great, check out the blog!

Sweetest Birthday

Happy Monday!!...If there is such a thing! I'm not a huge fan of Mondays because the weekend is over and I can't sleep in. ;) I hope you're having a good Monday.

Here's my version of Karen Giron's Sketch Challenge. It's hard to tell but I layered the cupcake. There is two layers of the whole cupcake, three layers of the icing and four layers of the candle...lots of cutting! Also, I made shaker boxes out of the grommets using the clear micro beads.

On the inside, I made it simple with a sentiment and a cupcake. I added sparkles because... well... they're just so darn cute!

I hope you enjoy!

Birthday Pizzazz

OMG, I've been away for SO long! I haven't crafted for more than 2 weeks, how sad!!!!! It's been a crazy couple of weeks. My brother moved in May 1 so we've been trying to organized things. It hasn't been super fun but we're getting there. The pet population has almost doubled in the house now, 5 animals. I know, I know. I had 2 cats and a dog, my brother has 2 cats so...they are all getting along pretty well, hissing here and there. I think they'll be good friends soon!

So, I have FINALLY crafted!! Oh the excitement! I did two challenges in one. The first is the Weekend Sketch Challenge on Mary Jo Albright's Blog and the second is the My Time Colour Challenge on Lauren Meader's Blog.

I really LOVE these colours together. Aren't they just SO summery??

I stamped some flowers from Petal Pizzazz on White card stock then I embossed with iridescent ice over the whole piece, it is super sparkly!!!
So, my picture taking abilities still have a little to be desired but I'll figure something out. I hope you can see everything ok.
The inside has a little "blemish" but it happened at the very end, I wasn't going to do it all over again! :)
I hope you enjoy!
